A month or so ago, Jim bought one of those “all-in-one” printers. It’s an Epson RX 580. I wasn’t too sure how I’d like it at first but I have to admit that now I think I’d find it hard to live without!
Jim’s hooked it up to a Hawking print server that he had lying around so that we could access it via the network. Though, at first I had a hell of a time printing to it … it kept randomly “losing” jobs in the print queue. After fiddling with my settings for a while, I told Jim what was happening and he fiddled with my settings for a while (LOL!) then went to play around with the router and then the print server. After unplugging and plugging a few network cables, he found that the one connected to the print server was missing that little bit of plastic (a “clip” I guess it’s called?) that held it in the port. So he cut a new cable and I was good to go.
Lesson learned: always check your cables! LOL :)
